Matt Sydal Discusses Impact Wrestling, Slammiversary

Published

on

X-Division Champion Matt Sydal has been making waves during his time with Impact Wrestling and his exciting brand of in-ring action is resonating with fans.

Sydal is enjoying the creative freedom that he is afforded by the company.

“We’re creating an ethereal consciousness during the match,” Sydal said, during an interview with Sporting News. “There’s a symbiotic relationship that we’re co-creating together and I want them feeling the same mystical experience that I am going through simultaneously. I just am trying to do more. It’s easy to go out there and wrestle. It’s hard to go out there and try new things, to create an atmosphere.”

The current state of wrestling is re-igniting his passion for the business.

“Wrestling used to be like this — it was this bathtub that we will fill up from only one faucet,” Sydal said. “It was mainly WWE filling the tub of love of wrestling for the entire world. And because of the internet, technology, the interconnectedness of people and the desire of independent artists to create their own work, this resurgence of wrestling has come up and it’s reinvigorating for me.”

Sydal now turns his attention to Brian Cage, whom he faces at Slammiversary.

“Someone like Brian Cage, he’s a gigantic man who is trying to wrestle like me,” Sydal stated. “That’s his mistake because I clearly hold the top card in someone who is wrestling like Matt Sydal. I see things from a higher perspective. I can know what Brian Cage is doing before he’s doing it because he’s doing me. I’ve been facing the man in the mirror my entire life. That’s been my hardest battle is the one where it’s me versus me.”

Before signing with AEW, Chris Jericho had some interesting offers from New Japan and Impact Wrestling, who apparently made a hefty offer to Y2J.

“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar is to WWE, as far as what I bring to the table” Jericho said, during an appearance on Wrestling Observer Radio . That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince [McMahon], I want that kind of a deal.”

Jericho went on the detail the offer he received from Impact.

“When I was starting to talk with Tony [Khan, AEW], and New Japan, and Impact as well, Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures, they have some cash as well. When they believe in something, they have money for it.”
